Inside Out Fruit Skewers

Express yourself with these “emotional” fruit skewers! As you assemble them by color, play a word game to share a related feeling—alternating the yellow fruits for Joy, blue for Sadness, green for Disgust, red for Anger, and purple for Fear. It’s a fun and fresh way for the whole family to share the fruity deliciousness inside everybody’s head!


  • Yellow fruit: pineapples or bananas
  • Blue fruit: blueberries
  • Green fruit: honeydew melon or green grapes
  • Red fruit: watermelon, strawberries, or raspberries
  • Purple fruit: purple grapes


  1. Choose one fruit to represent each character: pineapples or bananas for Joy, blueberries for Sadness, honeydew melons or green grapes for Disgust, watermelon, strawberries, or raspberries for Anger; and purple grapes for Fear.
  2. Cut fruit into one-inch cubes, except for grapes and berries which can be served as they are.
  3. String one fruit of each color onto the skewer in any order you wish.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you have as many fruit skewers as you need.
